Interactive objects[edit]


  • For tips on how to defeat Cyndr, see the boss' page here.
  • If you have killed Cyndr the Mountain Heart before (either in Normal mode or Hard mode), you don't need a quest to complete this dungeon. Simply enter the dungeon and complete it. The final boss will be Magmus instead of Cyndr, who breaks into Jellies when killed. All of those Magma Blisters must be killed before the Mountain Heart Chest will spawn.
  • If you do not have the Heart of the Shiverpeaks quest, Budger Blackpowder is available to provide powder kegs for your party. He is located prior to the Cracked Walls on each level.
  • 1,500 Deldrimor reputation points are awarded for completing this dungeon for the first time in Normal Mode, and 750 points are awarded for subsequent completions. 2,250 Deldrimor reputation points are awarded for completing this dungeon in hard mode for the first time, and 1,125 points are awarded for subsequent completions.
  • Entrance from Bogroot Growths is far to the southwest of the entrance from the Battledepths, and the Bogroot path is much longer.
  • On level 2 there are a total of five Dwarven Ghosts, even though the level has fewer than 30 enemies.
  • On level 3, there are no fleshy foes and there are several foes with Burning Immunity.
